A belated review of one of the most amazing vacation experiences I have had. What can I say but grazier to Vincenzo who was simply an incredible host for my family and parents. While off the beaten path, this is a surreal villa that is beyond description. Love, care and attention have been built into the cliffs above the bay... More

The Grotta did not disappoint in any way. It is a unique and beautiful jewel. Vincenzo was extremely kind and helpful. He arranged for a chef to prepare a delicious welcome meal, and we also had him come and bake wonderful pizzas in the wood fired pizza oven. The property is beautifully maintained. We plan on returning in 2016. I... More

We took a big family trip to the Amalfi Coast (a first for all of us) a few weeks ago and the experience was unforgettable! La Grotta dei Fichi is like nothing you've ever seen before. This incredible villa is built into a mountain, and offers luxury, privacy, and more than anything, amazing hosts! Throughout our week-long stay, our host... More

A wonderful place to live the Italian experience. Vincenzo is an amazingly super organised host and will plan your holiday for you if you so wish. We stayed 10 days in his beautiful villa that was painstakingly carved out of the rock by his father. It is truly one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen and an... More

I was looking for the perfect, private place for my husband to relax/retreat from a sometimes stressful work environment. I found it in the "Annnex" to La Grotta dei Fichi. The physical footprint, and the amenities of the Annex are not as grand, or impressive as the main villa, but they are none-the-less most charming, and delightful. It was the... More

The villa has breathtaking views, great location and is a true escape from reality! From cooking lessons, home-made pizza, relaxation days to day trips to Capri it's overall a trip of a lifetime! Would return in an instant.

The beauty, peace and comfort of Grotta dei Fichi reward its visitors immediately upon arrival. Then Vincenzo, with his passionate desire to share the best of this colourful region, his thoughtful attention to every detail, and his solid connections to multi-talented people who help create the ultimate vacation experience, begins to allow the holiday of a lifetime to unfold in...

I have traveled a lot and this is by far the most breathtaking location I've ever stayed. The location, villa itself, and Vincenzo's support made this a trip of a lifetime. I can honestly say there was not one person in my group of 11 female friends who did not absolutely love our week at the villa. My favorite excursions... More

With careful planning Vincenzo will make sure every detail of your stay is perfect. Be sure to take advantage of his... More

We stayed in the "small" villa of the sky at the grotto it was hopelessly romantic. Vincenzo could not have been more helpful the view was astonishing. We picked tomatoes and herbs from the tiny Garden each day,and drank the local wine,provided by our host. His recommendations on everything from the local bakery to the two star Michelin guide restaurant... More
